On Sunday, we’ll move our clocks ahead by an hour, that means we’ll lose an hour of sleep. Some Hoosier health experts have found not getting enough sleep can negatively affect our health, increasing our chances of heart disease, mood disorders and even learning issues. On average, adults need seven to nine hours of sleep every night to stay healthy mentally and physically.
A bill that would help ease the current teacher shortage in Indiana is being discussed at the Statehouse. House Bill 15-28 would provide scholarships to Hoosiers in other careers who decide to start teaching. Currently there are over 14-hundred teaching positions listed on Indiana’s online education job board. While many schools in the state are struggling to find qualified teachers, the need is especially great in Indiana’s rural areas.
